    Not really a pedalboard just yet. I'm working on building the board part. Pretty simple setup... a hum eliminator, compressor, OD, delay, reverb, and looper.

    I'm thinking about taking a piece of old tweed luggage we have and building a carrying case for a removeable pedalboard.

    I used to keep my Fuel Tank Jr. on the pedal board... all nice and new and shiny and red... plus the bracket supplied by Pedaltrain didn't suit :D:lol::D... I since made a bracket and now it's under the board... :D

    €12 chinese dual switcher added.
    The switches are hard click ones but it's gonna help having two more assigns in some presets.
    Also, I had that place empty on the board so...

    Found stuff can make great pedalboards/pedalboard cases! My old one ('90s-early '00s) was a slab of plywood carried in an old army surplus wooden amo crate I got at a yard sale. That was a heavy load of lumber and electronics to hump around town, though. I miss it yet I don't
    Please post your finished product, it sounds cool!

    Okay, so here's the latest iteration...hopefully last....


    Added the Blackout Effectors Blunderbuss Fuzz and Twosome fuzz within recent weeks. I considered selling the Twosome, but I bought it for such a great price I couldn't bring myself to do it. I replaced it with the new Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face, but I just didn't like it. So I put the Twosome back on the board and just started tweaking it. The Fuzz 2 is gated, glitchey and great, but not what I was after. So I have it off. The Fuzz 1 circuit with nothing else on is soooooo good: I can roll off the guitar volume and it cleans up to good, like a good fuzz face. And then my obsession with barefoot buttons is getting out of control!!! SRSLY!!!! I thought these were a joke/over-hyped, but after adding a few to my switcher, it was love at first press.

    So my signal path may be a bit unorthodox: guitar-->tuner-->Xotic SP Compressor-->switcher, then from there everything is basically in parallel I guess (Blackout Effectors Blunderbuss Fuzz is first on red button, Blackout Effectors Twosome fuzz is on orange button, ZVEX Double Rock is third on yellow button, TC Electronic Flashback on green button, ZCAT Q-Mod [chorus, phaser, flanger, tremolo] is next on blue button, I don't have anything in the last position though I keep looking, so basically it's a kill switch)-->Digitech Ricochet Whammy-->Xotic Wah-->amp (Fender Mustang III on Fender Twin). The wah at the end may seem unorthodox, but believe when I say that I spent several hours (twice) moving stuff around, putting wah in front, in front of fuzz, after fuzz but before distortion, and it just never sounded as good as it does at the end.

    And here's the undercarriage, powered by Tru-Tone/1-Spot CS 12 IMG_1501.JPG

    An update...

    The V845 does suck some of the tone... at first at room volume it seemed ok but once I started cranking it up and putting it through its paces it became obvious, and quite a bit of trebleness too...

    I purchased a 3PDT switch, and a couple of LED's while at it (pretty cool little units btw, they come in a vessel with their own in-line resistors and for only a couple of bucks...).

    Pretty easy mod to do...I adjusted the potentiometer back a bit while I was there... there's no tone sucking now and sounds awesome...

    Ok, I've just "updated" my PedalBoard (sold all 3 Mooer pedals and bought 2 Boss and 1 MXR), it's better than before :)
    The order is like before: Half pedals are in the input of amp (in this order: Buffer, Wah, Compressor, Acoustic Simulator, Volume - with Tuner output - and Overdrive) and half are on S/R (Harmonizer, Noise Gate, Tremolo, Flanger, Phaser, Chorus, Delay, Reverb, Drum Machine and Looper), I use the 3 channels of my Mesa (with EQ, Reverb and Boost from amp itself).

    The pedalboard is feed with 3 HB Powerplant Jr. (each output is isolate)..

    Took all my pedalboards out for a status check... lotsa rewiring and testing (jacks, pots, noise) waiting for me.

    A dremel, and a pack of reinforced cut-off discs is probably the simplest and cheapest way if you're starting with no tools. Grab a file too, you'll want to deburr and smooth it a little after material removal.

    You are the first person I thought of when I looked at Zingy's boards.

    Looks like you engineered a pedal train... in wood.

    Presently a practice rig for motel rooms while on business trips, I hate to say this little rig might be able to replace my real pedalboard.


    My DIY footswitch provides CTL2 and CTL3 in addition to the CTL1 button on the main board. I put on two 9-volt power connectors, so I can light up the LEDs with a 1Spot, and then jump over to feed the GT-1 with a short power cable.

    I can't see a yellow board.
    You need a yellow board.
    You know, you do.
    ....why are you still reading instead of planning a yellow board?

    You could use whatever pedal you want on any pedalboard and paint everything with a different colour. I mean, velcro, switches, displays. Everything.
    Just sayin'...
